20 Bullets From the Pomposity Pistol



To say that my kind and me have a high opinion of ourselves is to put it too low. We are superior, of an elevated status and ethereally stunning and wonderful. Our achievements are magnificent, our accomplishments legion and we leave you mere mortals trailing in our wake. Anybody who tells you that narcissists suffer from low self-esteem does not understand narcissism.

We know you look on, slack-jawed and wide-eyed, a mixture of awe and envy washing over you. How good it must be to be like us, you wonder. Well not only are we spectacular and scintillating we are generous too, so generous that I can share with you twenty of our excessively vain and self-centred comments.

You may have heard a number of these said to you, about you or just uttered in your general earshot as we gaze nobly towards the horizon. If you have, you know you are dealing with one of our kind and that we wholeheartedly believe these comments irrespective of how pompous, hypocritical ,vain or ridiculous they may sound.All that matters to us is ensuring we gain a reaction to them.

Here are twenty bullets which the narcissist will fire from The Pomposity Pistol which you need to dodge.


  1. I don’t complain, I advise.
  2. I do, I am not done to.
  3. Don’t be sorry. Be accurate.
  4. I turn heads. I turn sexual preferences.
  5. I own you.
  6. I have every right to do this.
  7. I never lie.
  8. I achieved all this without any help whatsoever.
  9. I made you what you are today.
  10. I am very much in touch with my feelings.
  11. I hate liars.
  12. It is all down to me.
  13. I am a god.
  14. If it wasn’t for me, nothing would get done round here.
  15. I think of everyone but myself. I am too giving at times.
  16. It can be hard being this well-loved.
  17. I cannot help being so popular.
  18. They are my people. They get understand me,
  19. Everyone wants to either be me or be with me.
  20. I am the puppet master and the piper. Deal with it.

    I have always questioned those who espouse. Bill Gates doesn’t tell people he is rich. Cindy Crawford does not tell people she is beautiful. Etc… if someone is telling you they are such and such it always is a sale as they are insecure whether it’s true or not, they don’t know it.

    I’ve been up tossing and turning for hours about this guy…. I think this type of rejection may be worse then the narc for me.. because with a narc it’s not personal. They need fuel – they will take it where they can get it. And every partner is dooomed to be abused. Every single one. There is no “special” or “important” significant others. Just objects.

    With a non narc – well – I’m not special or important enough to be a part of their life. Someone they think about etc. It’s tearing me apart. The pain is so much greater when I know I am definitely not the one….

    I’ve been thinking of the female narcs I’ve known ans how much I admire their ability to not swear the small stuff when it comes to breakups. They are too grandiose to believe the problem was them. They will still try and keep the object around. They are not brought down by their feelings (other then occasionally jealousy) but even the jealousy manifests differently.

    The other weird part is I feel attached to this guy. Like I want to control the outcome between him and his new woman. But logically he owes me nothing… so why do I feel like a narc… why do I feel so god dam jealous and like he’s hurting me so much… we dated for two months, never said I love you (even though I love him) … he owes me nothing yet I feel betrayed.

      Empath 007: if you only knew him two months you are in love with what you think he is. It takes time to really know someone. A long time. Your pain is the loss of the dream. The one he fed you. And we all want a loving companion … time will heal. I will add that I am an empath. I don’t get jealous really. It’s because I feel if it was true, then there would be no other. Oddly I find it easier to leave someone right away if he chooses another. I am just me but if a man wanted another woman I would let go. Much harder if he wants only you but he is not healthy. Best wishes! X
